Alpacas have been bred in South America for thousands of years. Their wool is a soft, durable, luxurious fibers. Alpaca wool is similar to sheep’s wool, but it is warmer and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.
Here are some alpaca wool blankets I’ve personally tested:
Softest Alpaca Blanket
The warmest and softest Alpaca blanket I’ve tried is this one — the Alpaca Wool Reversible Throw Blanket. The amount of warmth this blanket captures is amazing, and the blanket is as soft as my 100% cashmere blanket. These blankets are handmade in Ecuador. A queen size blanket currently costs about $100 — great value at this price.

Thickest Alpaca Blanket
These Alpaca blankets are very thick — they weighs close to 7 pounds. They are not as soft as they other blanket listed here, but if you put a sheet in between yourself and and blanket, they work great. I put them on top of my organic wool comforter, for extra warmth. These blankets are made in Peru.
